So now the NSA and its minions are breaking  into the email records of the President of Mexico?  And gathering data on French citizens?  Not only is our Tea Party hobbled government looking like a bunch of clowns on economic matters, now a unfettered spying operation by our government is making us enemies on a daily basis.  And for what?  And all springing from the bush/cheney years of WMD hysteria?  And an acquiescing Obama?

Richard Cohen's missive in the Albuquerque Journal this morning takes a second look at Eric Snowden as not being quite the evil person he and everyone else I know thought he was.  I am now beginning to think his revelations of uncontrolled snooping by this country of everyone and everything is a good thing.  There simply must be some limit put on the intelligence community in our nation to stick to the things that matter rather than gathering information that they have no need to know.

Well said! The feds are out of control on domestic spying, and they are allied by local law enforcement. Seems like we're moving to a police state thing to me, aka 1984. BTW, Orwell's book sales went crazy since the NSA spying scandal!
